THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Nicholls State University has celebrated the grand opening of the new culinary arts building that was more than two years in the making.

The Lanny D. Ledet Culinary Arts Building, the new home of the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute, is located on eight acres in Thibodaux.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/1U474EZ) visitors packed an air-conditioned tent set up just outside the facility Thursday to attend the grand opening.

On Monday, students began using the new kitchen and bistro, which will open to the public Sept. 14. A soft opening was held last week.

The culinary department started moving into the $12.6 million, 33,000-square-foot building on May 20, shortly after construction finished.

The Ledet Building is equipped with six kitchens, three classrooms and a dedicated student study area.
